Abstract: First paragraph: Over the last decade, British journalism has come under increased public scrutiny. First, the phone hacking scandal (2011) and the subsequent Leveson report (2011–2012) evidenced the inability of a number of tabloid publications to act ethically and in the public interest. Then the expert-layman relationship, which granted journalism its authority, suffered severe damage when experts were discredited as a knowledgeable source of information by populist politicians in 2016. Finally, a widespread dissemination of fake news exacerbated by social media algorithms took media distrust to unprecedented levels by the end of 2016.
